**[Due to unforeseen circumstances, George will not be able to appear at Fan Nexus this year. He has, however, agreed to appear at our 2018 event, so look for George, then. Also, he has helped us out by arranging for KC Mussman to be his replacement. Check out her page... she is awesome!]**
George Troester's passion for special effects was first realized when he watched Evil Dead at the age of 15.
Educated at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, George specializes in prosthetics, puppets and fabrication. When he designs a character, he first compares the base of his design to existing similar designs, then does the opposite so he can create something completely original.
George admires SFX artist Rob Bottin and compares him to Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.
Watch George on Season 11 of SyFy's FaceOff All-Stars!
And stay tuned for announcements regarding a Special FX Master Class that George will be offering at Fan Nexus....
